If you were short on time I wouldn't bother, but if able you could check this museum out. The headset is included in the cost of the admission. Was a bit confusing finding the numbers on the walks/doors to keep up with the audio, but I digress. Interesting but not something I would have seeked out myself.

It is nice, especially for a psychologist, to walk around the former house of Sigmund Freud and to see the place where he treated his patients. However, as a museum this house could be so much more! Overall the house looks a bit shabby. The exhibition of objects is not attractive, a room was about Freud's travels but who cares... More

Unless you are REALLY into the father of psychoanalysis, I don't really recommend going. The "museum", which is more like an old house, is out of the city center. Not many people around know where it is, so you might get lost. Inside you will be presented with his belongings and where he worked. We didn't learn too much about... More

Nice to see where Freud lived and learn a few things about him but not a replica of his home at all but more a collection of photos of how the place used to look. Definitely more for a fan of Freud - if you're not and your time is limited, plenty of better places to visit.

This was the main reason I visited Vienna. I have enjoyed studying and teaching Freud. The museum was ok. The highlight of the experience was being in Freud's home and reading the postcard/letters correspondence between Sigmund and Martha that I'd hadn't seen before.

This tiny museum is located in the place where Sigmund Freud lived before he bought his way out of Nazi-controlled Austria in 1938. There is not much to see in the museum itself -- a few artefacts and hand-written letters. If you are a Freud-fan or admirer, definitely a must, otherwise I would say: go to another place, if your...

Fans of Freud will absolutely love the place, which was founded in 1971 covering Sigmund Freud's life story. (1856-1939) His old rooms, where he lived for 47 years and produced the majority of his writings, now house a documentary center to his life and works. Attached to the museum are Europe's largest psychoanalytic research library, with 35,000 volumes, but take... More

I've studied some psychology and read a lot of Freud's books, so was really interested in seeing his place, even though it didn't have great reviews. The owners of the museum seemed like they didn't even try. Only one room is actually filled with things, the rest are badly described photocopies of commonly known images. There was no effort put...

This should not even be called a museum. The place contains a series of empty trims and photocopies of documents and pictures. Except for one small room the other 2 have nothing. Waste of money and time. Also, expensive for what you get.

Staying in Serviten Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
Serviten Quarter
The Serviten Quarter is an inner city neighborhood with many private charms. Popular with French and American expats, Sigmund Freud’s neighborhood boasts his former practice and apartments, now turned into a museum. Stunning Liechtenstein Garden Palace houses the private art collection of Prince Adam of Liechtenstein. Romantic Strudlhofstiege close to the palace is a fantastic photo spot. With their small independent shops and eateries, the main streets of Liechtensteinstrasse, Porzellangasse and Servitengasse reveal much of this area’s character. Peek into baroque Serviten Church, with its richly decorated dome and walls. At the Old Jewish cemetery in Seegasse you can see one of the most precious cemeteries in Europe with tombstones almost 500 years old.
